In Pumpkinheads , beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Rainbow Rowell and Eisner Award-winning artist Faith Erin Hicks have teamed up to create this tender and hilarious story about two irresistible teens discovering what it means to leave behind a place--and a person--with no regrets.
Deja and Josiah are seasonal best friends.
Every autumn, all through high school, they've worked together at the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world. (Not many people know that the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world is in Omaha, Nebraska, but it definitely is.) They say good-bye every Halloween, and they're reunited every September 1.
But this Halloween is different--Josiah and Deja are finally seniors, and this is their last season at the pumpkin patch. Their last shift together. Their last good-bye.
Josiah's ready to spend the whole night feeling melancholy about it. Deja isn't ready to let him. She's got a plan : What if--instead of moping and the usual slinging lima beans down at the Succotash Hut--they went out with a bang? They could see all the sights! Taste all the snacks! And Josiah could finally talk to that cute girl he's been mooning over for three years . . .
What if their last shift was an adventure?

This is a fresh and fun read! Deja and Josiah are two best friends who work together every Autumn at a charming pumpkin patch. Reading Pumpkinheads left me with warm, fuzzy feelings for Fall and the wonderful atmosphere that goes along with it!
Alison's Pick. Alison writes: Pumpkinheads is a graphic novel that's a love letter to everything awesome about fall and features a misadventure on Halloween with two employees at a pumpkin patch.
Every autumn, Deja and Josiah work together at the same pumpkin patch. On Halloween, their last shift together, outgoing Deja is determined to get quiet and reserved Josiah to have some fun and finally talk to his crush. This sweet and funny graphic novel is perfect for sweater weather.

Pumpkinheads is an absolutely delightful, funny and thoughtful love letter to autumn and the people who love it, like me! And I so wish there was a pumpkin patch like DeKnock's, I would go in a heartbeat.
